Thanks. I wasn't aware of the motorcycle tire specific site, only the general Bridgestone site, which is essentially useless for MC tire specs.
Regarding the various types - what's the difference? The front tire on my bike is a Type G, which is not the original front tire per the PO. It has about .15" to .16" of depth remaining, which is about .10" down from new (.25"). The back tire, which I'm currently replacing, is a BW502 Type E, which also does not seem to be stock. I'm replacing it with a G as it turns out. The only difference I can see from the specs is tread depth.
So, is there much to this? This is the first time I've noticed different "types" of the same tire and same tire size when buying MC tires.
